Annual Alumni Dinner

Every year, dedicated Essex Catholic Alum gather to plan for the Annual Alumni Dinner.

The Event serves several purposes:

  1. An opportunity for Alumni of our great school to evaluate and select graduates who have distinguished themselves in the service of our country, our community or to our Essex Catholic Alumni.
  2. An opportunity to celebrate the Anniversary of the past graduating classes. This dinner serves as the official / un-offical reunion for the 50th, 40th, 30th 20th and 10th anniversary classes.
  3. Opportunity to gather an share our fond memories and fabled history.

Where Are They Now?


As we all remember, the friendships we built at Essex Catholic provided a sense of brotherhood for many of us. Outside of school, we all had our childhood friends; but, these Essex friendship will never be forgotten. For all of us, life took us in different directions and sometimes away from our original paths (even away from New Jersey). In this new section: Where Are They Now? we hope to provide a glimpse of where many of our brothers went and what they are doing with their lives after Essex Catholic.


Hope you enjoy the new section and pleae let us know if there are any of our Brothers who you wish to recognize. Please do not hesitate to write a note in the Contact Us section of this website.
